Navarro Breach Photo Essay

The first batch of photos were taken just after noon Sunday (Nov 30, 2014) during a low tide. The river had broken through its sandbar about 36 hours prior (midnight Friday). [Photos taken by Mike and Annie Kalantarian.]

We returned four days later (Thursday, Dec 4) at another low tide. Three more inches of rain had fallen the previous couple days. The river was noticeably muddier, and the mouth's channel was deeper and wider.
